! NCR 53c810 SCSI card, TeraSys Magneto-Optical Drive: no access

        I have the hardware mentioned in the subject line and can't
use the M.O. drive.
        Both are correctly recognized, as the kernel (1.3.81) gives me
the following log:

scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : at PCI bus 0, device 11,  function 0
scsi-ncr53c7,8xx : NCR53c810 at memory 0xf3fff000, io 0xe400, irq 11
scsi0 : burst length 8
scsi0 : NCR code relocated to 0x8c5fc (virt 0x0008c5fc)
scsi0 : test 1 started
scsi0 : NCR53c{7,8}xx (rel 17)
scsi : 1 host.
scsi0 : target 1 accepting asynchronous SCSI
scsi0 : setting target 1 to asynchronous SCSI
  Vendor: FUJITSU   Model: M2512A            Rev: 1507
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 01
scsi : detected total.

        I've tried to format with mke2fs and mount MS-DOS formatted
floppy, but I have always have:

open: No such device while trying to determine size of /dev/sda


mount: /dev/sda is not a block device

        on every /dev/sd* files.

        I've read the SCSI-HOWTO about this kind of problems and use
MAKEDEV, etc... but it's still the same...

        Thanks for help !


PS: the system works under Windows 95, so it shouldn't be a hardware


1. How to Access Magneto-Optical Drive?

Hi Solaris gurus:

We recently bought a MaxOptix Tahiti III Magneto-Optical disk drive.
I installed it on a Sparc Classic running Solaris 2.3. In order to
use the optical platters (650 Mb each side), I had to first create a
filesystem on each side and then mount it. But here is the problem.
In order to do this, I have to be root. However I want other users on this
system to use the magneto-optical drive as a filesystem as well, if they
bring their own optical platters. I know this can be done on NeXT computers,
where the optical disk is removable by each user.

Does anyone have a script or better still a GUI based tool to automatically
create a file system and mount it without having to be root on the system?

Any ideas or suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
